All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Dirt, Silver & Gold started life as a daunting triple-LP compilation in 1976, summing up the highlights of the group's first decade, and later found a second life of sorts on CD from One Way Records. Anyone who owns One-Way Records' reissue of Dirt, Silver & Gold should take a good, long look at this reissue from BGO, which not only features vastly superior sound on its 37 songs -- each remastered from what sounds like the original master tape, recompiled for this release and featuring crisp, loud sound -- but also corrects the one major flaw in the One-Way release -- the absence of any annotation. This slipcased, narrow double-CD set carries us from the early days ...

This slipcased, narrow double-CD set carries us from the early days of the Dirt Band as a novelty act to their blossoming as a folk-bluegrass-blues hybrid and their plunge into country music; John Tobler's excellent notes provide a detailed history covering every step of their development from the mid-1960s through the early 1990s, offering a quick update to 2003 and their current lineup.

    Holding Out

    I love this album, playing it daily while in college. I am holding out right now from buying CD since all songs were remastered and do not sound like the ones I had loved to listen to. In my humble opinion not every album needs remastering and this one didn't.

    Three stars are solely for remastered songs.

    I've wanted this album on CD for years!

    I grew up listening to this album as an LP, and while it eventually ended up retired to a quiet corner of the house after my family's turntable died, the music was never forgotten. So I was understandably thrilled to stumble on this CD. Finally! The opportunity to bring Nitty Gritty Dirt Band back into play! There are so many great music roots embedded in the songs---bluegrass, reggae, gospel, honky-tonk, classical, even a 1920s dance tune---and yet the band never loses its distinctive 60s and 70s folk flavor. I love just about every song on this album, but I'm particularly delighted to rediscover "Collegiana," "Mr. Bojangles," "Ripplin' Waters," and "The Battle of New Orleans."
